Whatever your occupation, send out a market research survey and you’ll be on your way to developing a business that attracts and satisfies your target market.

How to use market research survey templates

Choose one of our ready-made templates or customise one of your own. It’s easy to do; you’ll be hitting the “send” button within minutes.

Product and service development

You have a great idea for a product or service, but is the world ready for it? Before you start doodling concept sketches on serviettes, conduct a marketing research survey to discover the designs and features your audience will love. Already launched? Use research questionnaires to get ready for version 2.0. Ask your participants questions such as, “If you are not likely to use our new product, why not?” or, “What would make you more likely to use our new service?” Our product testing survey template can help you get started.

Demographics

Age, gender and income of your audience are all characteristics that contribute to the successful development and marketing of your product or service. When you understand your target market, you’re in a great position to better understand their needs and you’ll be able to make better business decisions. There are a variety of different demographic questions you can ask. To help you brainstorm, check out the questions from our U.S. demographics survey template.

Brand tracking

Your brand is constantly evolving. Find out how consumers perceive it over time to identify what influences it. You can also measure your brand against competitors to see where you stand in the market. We’ve got several survey templates you can use, including ones on brand loyalty and brand awareness.

Consumer behaviour

Keeping your pulse on your target market helps you understand and prioritise your organisation’s needs. Are attitudes shifting? Do behaviours seem to be changing? By finding the answer to these questions and taking action, you’ll be in a position to better attract and retain consumers over time.

Industry insights

Get detailed information about your target market’s industry and business with one of our marketing survey templates. Get answers to questions like, “When choosing skin care products, which of the following factors matter to you?” or, “Are you a first-time home buyer, or have you purchased a home before?” and you’ll have data you can put to work immediately to fine-tune your service and product offerings.

3 tips for better market research questionnaires

1. Survey outside of your customer base

Getting feedback from your current customers is valuable. But to identify new opportunities that ultimately grow your business, you’ll want to collect opinions from your entire target market.

2. Start general…

Start with a demographic survey of your customers. You may be aiming for a particular audience but find out you have a feature or product line that appeals to a different audience. Once you get to know your audience, you’ll know how to market (and how not to market) to them.

3. …Then get specific

Get consumer feedback on your particular line of work, products and services. Ask about competing products, alternative services or specific ways you can improve.

You don’t have to spend loads of money to get answers. You just need to take advantage of the smart, cost-effective tools. Not sure how to reach the right people? SurveyMonkey Audience gives you access to millions of respondents ready to provide the answers you need to make critical decisions. At SurveyMonkey, we’re always working to improve our technology to help you make your best decisions. By sending a survey to reach out to your target market, you can make sure your efforts are as effective as possible.
